I’m a huge nScrypt fan and love the firm’s technologies. The way they’ve defined their “line in a tool” approach to additive is really inspiring to me. With nScrypt machines, you can print electronics, polymers, micro dispense, mill and aerosol jet, all in one machine. The company is the only one that is working on combining bioprinting and electronics and is far ahead of anyone else in electronics 3D printing, as well. At the same time it leads in high-tech, rugged printers that can be used in austere environments and has worked on printers for use on board the International Space Station. I love the capabilities of nScrypt’s machines and think that they are criminally unknown.

Talking with the CEO of nScrypt, Ken Church, was a blast. We discussed bioprinting from a realistic standpoint, as well as electronics 3D printing and the future of our industry. Ken’s a straight shooter and is as knowledgeable as he is opinionated, so you’ll learn a lot from him, I’m sure. We also surprisingly talked a while about the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), with nScrypt having been partially funded by them. Unsurprisingly, Max and I had a little to say about that, as well. This would be a great episode to give a listen to, especially if you’re thinking of applying for DARPA funding or have something that could help them. But, if you just want to be completely jazzed out about our technology and the possibilities, well then you should listen, too.
